Condition General Motors has decided to conduct a Voluntary Emission Campaign involving certain 1997, 1998 and 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier and Pontiac Sunfire model vehicles located in fifteen U.S. high salt corrosion states and in Ontario. Quebec and Atlantic provinces; and certain 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, and 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier and Pontiac Sunfire model vehicles located Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia, the Yukon and Northwest Territories. These vehicles have the potential to experience moisture entering the Powertrain Control Module (PCM), as a result of corrosion after extended exposure to road salt, Moisture entering the PCM can lead to symptoms including illumination of the Check Engine light or the engine running rough. If these symptoms are ignored, the engine may stall and may not be able to be restarted.

1. Remove the idle air control (IAC) valve connector. 2. Remove the IAC valve attaching screws (1). NOTE: If the IAC valve has been in service: DO NOT push or pull on the IAC valve pintle. The force required to move the pintle may damage the threads on the worm drive. Also, DO NOT soak the IAC valve in any liquid cleaner or solvent, as damage may result. 3. Remove the IAC valve assembly (2). ^ Clean the IAC valve O-ring sealing surface, the pintle valve seat, and the air passage. ^ The IAC valve may be cleaned. Use a shop towel or parts cleaning brush to remove any heavy deposits. ^ Any shiny spots on the pintle or seat are normal and do not indicate misalignment or a bent pintle shaft. ^ If the air passage have heavy deposits, remove the throttle body for a complete cleaning. ^ Inspect the IAC valve O-ring for cuts, cracks, or distortion. Replace the O-rings if necessary. ^ When installing a new IAC valve, be sure to replace the valve with an identical part. The IAC valve pintle shape and diameter are designed for a specific application. MEASUREMENT PROCEDURE This procedure is only for installing a new IAC valve. IMPORTANT: If installing a new IAC valve, replace the IAC valve with an identical part. The IAC valve pintle shape and diameter are designed for the specific application. Measure the distance between tip of the IAC valve pintle and the mounting flange. If the distance is more than 28 mm (1.1 in), use finger pressure to slowly retract the pintle. The force required to retract the pintle of a new valve will not cause damage to the valve. INSTALLATION PROCEDURE

The daytime running lights (DRL) relay is controlled by the body control module (BCM). Battery positive voltage is applied to the relay coil at all times. The BCM grounds the DRL relay control circuit in order to turn ON the DRL relay. When the DRL relay control circuit becomes shorted to ground or the DRLs remain illuminated without being commanded on by the BCM, DTC B2601 is set. CONDITIONS FOR RUNNING THE DTC ^ The ignition switch is in the ON position. ^ The headlamp switch is in the off position. ^ The transaxle is in park. CONDITIONS FOR SETTING THE DTC All of the following conditions must be met: ^ The BCM is not commanding the DRL relay on. ^ The headlamp feedback is present for 5 seconds. ACTION TAKEN WHEN THE DTC SETS ^ The BCM disables the DRL relay control as long as the malfunction is present. ^ The SERVICE indicator illuminates
